I don't believe any of these "we need a ____" first statements. There is no sure fire formula. What you need is to do better in the playoffs than everyone else. There's no one standing at the velvet rope in front of the cup making sure you have a 1C or 2 puck movers or any of that stuff. Yeah, those things increase your chances but its the NHL playoffs and its a gamble.

Its absolutely impossible to tell "how far" you are IMO. If a team makes the playoffs they have a chance. This is a much better NYR team than last year and probably the best team that I've followed seriously but there's no translation between that and how many years until you get a cup. Could be this year, could be 2050 next time they win it.
